"Cowboys & Aliens" Producer Platinum Studios, Inc. to Launch Comic Book Series "Unique" on Graphicly"Harry Potter" Producer Ramps Up Developing the Property at Walt Disney Pictures; Comic to Be Available for iPad, iPhone, Android, and Tablets (May 24, 2011)
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/24/11 -- "Cowboys & Aliens" producer Platinum Studios, Inc. (OTCBB: PDOS), an entertainment rights company that controls an international library of more than 5,000 comic book characters, announced today that the company will be releasing its comic book "Unique" for the iPad, iPhone, Android phones and tablets via its licensee Graphicly. Graphicly, one of the web's premier destinations for digital comics with over one million app downloads and over one million monthly visitors, plans to unveil the comic across their platforms starting June 15.
"Unique" tells the story of Jon Geoffries who is convinced all his life that he was schizophrenic, until he discovers that he's actually Unique -- a person endowed with the ability to move between parallel dimensions. "Unique" comes from Platinum Studios' Macroverse, created by CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, the same universe as "Cowboys & Aliens."
Walt Disney Pictures is developing the feature film with "Harry Potter" producer David Heyman alongside "Cowboys & Aliens" producer and creator Scott Mitchell Rosenberg.
Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde star in the feature film version of Platinum Studios' graphic novel "Cowboys & Aliens," directed by Jon Favreau ("Iron Man" and "Iron Man 2"), executive produced by Steven Spielberg and produced by Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Scott Mitchell Rosenberg. DreamWorks and Universal Pictures will release the picture in North America on July 29, 2011 and Paramount Pictures will release internationally.
"Unique" is just one of the properties Platinum Studios controls among a multi-universe library of over 5,000 comic characters. While other large comics-based libraries are already spoken for, Platinum Studios remains independent of major entertainment studio affiliation. Marvel was acquired by Disney for $4 Billion, and is the second major comic library to be acquired by a Hollywood studio after DC Comics, which is owned by Warner Bros.
